While speaking with the Secretary of State, Ilhan Omar compared Israel and the U.S.’s ‘atrocities’ to those of the Taliban and Hamas.
Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar recently claimed that the U.S. and Israel commit “unthinkable atrocities” just like Islamic terrorist organizations.
“We must have the same level of accountability and justice for all victims of crimes against humanity,” Omar wrote on Twitter. “We have seen unthinkable atrocities committed by the U.S., Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban.”
Along with her tweet, the far-left “Squad” member included a video of her questioning Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a committee hearing. She asked where Palestinians could get justice over the crimes they claimed to have suffered from.

Blinken responded by saying: “…whether it’s the United States or Israel, we both have the mechanisms to make sure that there’s accountability in any situations where there are concerns about the use of force and human rights, etc. I believe that both of our democracies have that capacity, and we’ve demonstrated it, and we’ll need to continue to demonstrate it going forward.”
Leftists’ divisive rhetoric surrounding the Israel-Palestinian conflict only seems to make the situation worse. This type of one-sided view has also become increasingly dangerous as anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish people have been occurring around the world.
The Israel-Palestinian conflict has unfairly impacted people on both sides, but we cannot forget that Islamic terrorists are still a threat to democracy around the world. We must continue to stand with Israel and fight against terrorism.
